Get out and explore Midtown! You’ll find one-of-a-kind shopping options with either hand-picked or hand-made goods by some of the most creative, discerning merchants anywhere.
If you’re a “foodie,” taking in Midtown is like taking a trip around the world with cuisine options including Italian, Indian, French, Middle Eastern, American, Asian, Greek, Mediterranean, and one of the best bakeries around, Avalon International Breads. With Eastern Market, a natural food market, neighborhood grocers, a hardware store and more, all in the area – those small but important daily livability needs are met.
Soak in one of the country’s finest art collections at the Detroit Institute of Arts or dive into the contemporary art scene at the Museum of Contemporary Art Detroit (MOCAD). Wander through one of the many Midtown galleries. Step back in time at the Detroit Historical Museum or the Charles H. Wright Museum of African American History. Relax with a good book at the spectacular Detroit Public Library. Midtown is the cultural capital of the region.
And, Midtown is ground central for Detroit’s non-stop entertainment – from the Majestic Theatre’s live indie-rock scene to one of the country’s finest symphonies at the Detroit Symphony Orchestra. From the Fisher Theatre to our north, to Downtown’s expansive Riverfront, and Fox Town’s theatres and professional sports Stadia District to our south. It’s just moments away, from the heart of it all – Midtown.
Midtown also boasts one of the most concentrated areas of higher learning and medical facilities in the Midwest – as an employee of the Detroit Medical Center (DMC), Henry Ford Health System (HFHS) or Wayne State University (WSU), that’s something to be proud of.
With a growing reputation as one of the country’s most respected research institutions, Wayne State University continues to grow, both physically and in stature. The Detroit Medical Center is a leader in everything from children’s medicine to cancer research, and beyond. And Henry Ford Health System, which is recognized for excellence and innovations in cardiology and cardiovascular surgery, neurology, orthopedics and sports medicine, organ transplants and beyond, is also looking to expand its New Center campus.
